George Huguely: [inaudible] heights.

Investigator 1: Oh, Okay.

George Huguely: Then I went over to talk to Yeardley and…

Investigator 1: Who’s Yeardley?

George Huguely: Yeardley is my former girlfriend. [inaudible: this is about which I understand?] But I went over to talk to Yeardley. I was like “YEARDLEY” and she was like already totally freaked out because of what she did this past, like a few days ago, and we haven’t talked since and I was just going to like talk to her. And she was already like “ah”; freaking out. Like, you know [inaudible] and I was like “I’m just trying to talk to you”. And like she like started to be like, really like, defensive against it. Because the week before she came into my apartment and like attacked, like started striking me and I was like “you gotta leave” and like, my roommates girlfriend had to be like, take her out of there because of this. So like, when I went in to talk to, [inaudible] talk to her, she was already on the defensive edge. I was like “I’m not here to like, I’m just here to talk to you” and she got all like, sat up. Like against the wall,  like if it was in this corner she was up against the wall and I was like, we were sitting there talking and she started getting like, all like aggressive like after this so I was like “chill out” and shook her a little bit and she started being like, freaking out. And I was like “Listen, I’m not here to do anything, I’m here to talk to you about everything that ensued in the last week.” And She was like, started being like “no no no ” hitting her head [pretends to hit head on wall] like “stop it” [inaudible] I was like “Yeardley what the hell, like, we were just going to talk”. It was not at all a good conversation because like, she was already like, freaking out just seeing me, just even seeing me there.

Investigator 1: Okay, what happened next?

George Huguely: Next she just kept hitting her head on the wall where she was sitting on the bed and I was like [demonstrates grabbing arms] grabbed her and was like “stop” and I looked at her and was like “we need to like talk about this”. Like I held her arms and stuff but like I never struck her, never like hit her [demonstrates hitting someone] hit her in the face or anything. I was just like “we need to talk” and she was like so, like what’s the word? [demonstrates violently shaking with his arms and dodging motions] fish out of the water like. So like, all this. All because of what happened last week and I was like “Listen like, I’m not here to like fight with you or do anything, I’m here to talk to you.” And like “noooo get away from me”. Like that’s what happened. I left and she was in her bed, I think her nose was bleeding a little bit but she was, when I left she was still in her bed. Actually, she may, at one point she was on the floor and we were talkin, we were, and she was like still fighting. Actually no, she was running to her desk where her desk is and she was like “you have to leave, you have to leave, you have to leave, you have to leave” like all this stuff. I was like “alright, but I want to talk to you after all of this.” I was a little persistent because of the situation. Like, my former girlfriend who, what happened last week, you know, alright like talk and everything. Somehow we ended up, somehow I was wrestling her on the floor and I was like “stop” and I was holding her but I never struck her or anything. And I think that might have been when her nose started to bleed, actually. When I was holding her on the floor being like “Listen like [inaudible: attacked?], I wanted to talk to her about everything because I got like, whatever, text messages from her and all this stuff. That’s when I was like holding her, not like forcefully. That’s when her nose started to bleed [inaudible: face on the ground?] and then the conversation was going no where and nothing was happening http://and%20video%20breaks%20up left and went back home.

Investigator 1: Lets kinda start from, you keep talking about something that happened last week. What happened last week?

George Huguely: What happened last week?

Investigator 1: Does it kind set up the…

George Huguely: Well, yeah. That’s why I was going over there to talk to her.

Investigator 1: What happened last week? Let’s start there.

George Huguely: Last week? Well, a lot of things happened. Basically she came over to my appointment at, on,

Investigator 1: Let me stop you, real quick. How long have ya’ll been dating?

George Huguely: Two years.

Investigator 1: Two years? Okay.

George Huguely: Yeah, two and a half years.

Investigator 1: Okay, alright. Now start from the last week.

George Huguely: We broke up like a month ago but we have been talking and hanging out and stuff.

Investigator 1: [inaudible] break up?

George Huguely: We broke up because she wanted to. ‘Cause she wasn’t real sure about all of this because we’re both like graduating and she wants to move to New York and I want to move to like San Francisco. So she was like “we don’t really know” and she was like, unsure about all of this so we broke, so she was like, sorta broke it off like slightly over a period of time. Like “we shouldn’t hang out anymore” but we were still hanging out and everything. And then, come a week ago she went down to Carolina. I don’t really know what happened, she told me what happened, which was she sent me some text messages like “oh I’m so glad I like, I [studders] fucked so and so.” So I didn’t respond to that. I was like “whatever”.

Investigator 1: She said she “fucked” somebody? Is that what you just said?

George Huguely: Hooked up, fucked, same thing. So I didn’t respond to that. Those were like text messages. So I was like [inaudible: Brian?] look at this, this is fucked up but didn’t respond. So I went to the bar. Saw her at the bar, actually, and she’s all like fucked up. So I was talking to a buddy and uh, and she like comes over. My buddy like, didn’t even bother like. And then I get home like on my sofa and she comes in the door, like this. With the same buddies I was with earlier and two girls that were visiting deciding if they wanted to come here to school or not. And she comes over and started hitting me in the face and I was like “ah stop, get off of me, leave me alone, like you can’t be doing this” and my roommate’s girlfriend, I was calling her from the kitchen like “get her out of here” like never touched her or struck her. Like “Listen, you have to like stop hitting me” and she wouldn’t stop. She kept coming. So that happened. So I was going over there to talk to her, last night, on Saturday. That’s the reason I was going over there to talk to her. I never like hit her, or struck her, like nothing.

Investigator 1: Okay, so you go over there. Knock on the door?

George Huguely: Her front door was open. Her room door was closed and I knocked like this [knocks on wall] “Yeardley”. Like she heard me [inaudible] and went.

Investigator 1: Went where?

George Huguely: To her room.

Investigator 1: Straight to her bedroom?

George Huguely: Well, yeah, I mean.

Investigator 1: How did you get through the door?

George Huguely: Her door? Front door?

Investigator 1: Her door.

George Huguely: Actually, it might have been locked.

Investigator 1: Mhm. It was.

George Huguely: Yeah. Actually.

Investigator 1: Just be honest.

George Huguely: Yeah, actually it was locked because I think I put a hole. Pretty sure it was locked now that you said that.

Investigator 1: Why would you do that?

George Huguely: Because I wanted to talk to her. She’s been sending me like emails.

Investigator 1: Was she telling you to leave?

George Huguely: Well I guess, once I was in her room. She was like, very, like [inaudible: I don’t want to talk to you?]

Investigator 1: What was she wearing?

George Huguely: She was, what was she wearing? She was in her bed. A tee-shirt?

[cross talk]

Investigator 1: Okay. So she was in her bed in a tee-shirt. Light on, light off?

George Huguely: Light off. I’m pretty sure this was around 12:45 ish. So she like, probably, either asleep or doing something. So I went in there to talk to her and she was very on edge. “I don’t want to talk, I don’t want to talk”. And I was like “what you told last week was outrageous, I just want to talk to you.”

Investigator 2: [inaudible]

George Huguely: Because I want to talk to her.

Investigator 1: Continue on. It’s fine. Continue on. So you want to talk to her and she doesn’t want to talk to you.

George Huguely: Not really. I mean, we talked though. There were parts where we were talking.

Investigator 1: Do you know what you were talking about?

George Huguely: I mean, about so many different things.

Investigator 1: Like what?

George Huguely: Like what she did last week. How she attacked me. You know. Like she went to Carolina Sunday, came over and attacked me on Tuesday. I was over there to talk, like this is outrageous. I mean, and, because I was trying to be better. Then like, you know. Then all of this happens. It’s to the point where my roommates has to take her out of there.

Investigator 1: Okay. Lets go back to you’re in her room tonight.

George Huguely: Last night. Yeah. And so she’s like in the corner. If her bed was pushed all the way back in the corner. And she, I’m pretty sure she was very defensive because she knew how sad I was because I’ve told her through emails how sad I was about what she did and about Tuesday night and coming in and striking me. And so I was like “Listen like, I want to talk to you, what you did was bullshit. That’s not like, okay.

Investigator 1: So you were pretty upset, pretty angry.

George Huguely: Um, yeah, I mean, I was more emotional than angry. [inaudible] She was like sorta pushing everything she did to the back burner and talking about, like try to put everything she did… wasn’t important. And we talked. She kept saying things like “well, I don’t trust you” stuff like that. It kept going to the point where I was like “Yeardley, we have to figure out what’s going on”, and she was like “I don’t want to talk about it” and she like pushed me like “get out of here” like “go” and I was like “no” like “we have to talk”.

Investigator 1: Where are you holding on her?

George Huguely: On her arms.

Investigator 1: Up here?

George Huguely: Like shoulders. Yeah like, Yeah. Never struck her, if I could like show you like.

Investigator 1: No, I’m sorry. [inaudible cross talk]

George Huguely: [inaudible] She was like wiggling and like hide in the corner, defensively almost. And then like wrestled on the ground the same way. Her nose started bleeding. Then she ended up back in bed. Then I left. I was like [inaudible]

Investigator 1:  How did she get back in bed?

George Huguely: Ummm… We were like wrestling and we stood up and I tossed her like pushed her onto the bed like “go to bed, I’ll talk to you later”. I didn’t like throw her. We were like standing at this point after we wrestled on the ground. She had like a bloody nose. Like “go to bed”.

Investigator 1: So you kinda like tossed her on the bed and left.

George Huguely: Yeah.

Investigator 1: Did you go back to check on her at any point?

George Huguely: No I did not.

Investigator 1: Did you touch her neck area at all? Choke her at one point?

George Huguely: Uh… I may have grabbed her a little bit by the neck but I never like, strangled her. Yeah I mean, during the whole commotion. I may have grabbed her neck but I was never like, strangling her.

Investigator 1: Alright, I have to check on something real quick, then I will be right back.

George Huguely: Mind if I use the restroom?

Investigator 1: Um, actually if I can have one second.

George Huguely: I’m sorry [inaudible] I had to take that call. I apologize [inaudible]. You said you got there at 12:45? Around that area.

Investigator 1: Why do you think it was that time?

George Huguely: Because I went to dinner 7:30 I think. Went to the bar for a little bit. That’s just my..

Investigator 1: Estimate. Did you call her to let her know you were coming or text her?

George Huguely: No because she says she lost her phone the night she came in my apartment. She says it’s in my apartment but it’s not. So she doesn’t have a phone so I did not call her or text her.

Investigator 1: How long do you think you were at her apartment when you were there?

George Huguely: Like between, around like 8 minutes. I mean like, 8-10 minutes.

Investigator 1: Was anybody else there? Just the two of you?

George Huguely: No. Her roommates weren’t there actually.

Investigator 1: Um, okay. When you left her apartment did you take anything with you?

George Huguely: No. She was in her bed.

Investigator 1: Alright. [inaudible] her laptop is missing I guess. Did you grab it when you were leaving?

George Huguely: Yeah I did actually.

Investigator 1: Is it at your apartment?

George Huguely: Somewhere at my apartment. I can give it to her.

Investigator 1: Why did you take her laptop?

George Huguely: Because I was so pissed that she wouldn’t talk to me. I took it almost as collateral I guess. It’s not reasonable logic. But, I don’t know.

Investigator 1: Did you take anything else besides her laptop?

George Huguely: No no.

Investigator 1: Alright. So when you left out of there you saw she was bleeding out her nose. Did you try to call rescue or anything to make sure she was alright?

George Huguely: No, I did not.

Investigator 1: Why?

George Huguely: Uh… I didn’t think it was like, I didn’t think she was like in need of going to the emergency room. She had like, a bloody

Investigator 1: Why did you think that?

George Huguely: I don’t know.

Investigator 1: [inaudible] and correct me if I’m wrong, when you were shaking her and her head was hitting the wall..

George Huguely: Well that was the beginning. Initially, like, she was up in the corner like [demonstrates], “get out of here” this.

Investigator 1: At anytime when you were shaking her, did her head bang the wall? You already said you didn’t hit her.

George Huguely: I mean I wasn’t like throwing her into the wall. We were sitting on the bed against the wall and I was like “Yeardley” like. I mean maybe? We were against the wall and she’s like sitting there in the corner. Like if we were like this and I was like “Yeardley” like “what the fuck was that about, like that was bullshit that you would do that.” Like possibly. I was like… such a bullshit move. [audible]

Investigator 1: She has a pretty good knot on her head. That’s why I’m asking. How you could explain how that would have happened.

George Huguely: I mean, I don’t even know. A knot?

Investigator 1: On the sided of her head, she’s been hit pretty good right there. So I’m just trying to figure out did you hit her with something?

George Huguely: No. I never. Never touched her or struck her or anything.

Investigator 1: Well you touched her. You had your hands on her.

George Huguely: I said I never struck her. Never never at all like [demonstrates]

Investigator 1: I’m trying to figure out why she has a black eye and why she’s got a big lump right there.

George Huguely: I mean, we… were… I mean. [crosstalk]

Investigator 1: So you don’t know how it happened.

George Huguely: So she’s got a black…

Investigator 1: It’s fine It’s fine. Um, So you. I’m going through this one more time and make sure we’re on the same page. You’re pretty pissed at her from a week ago for sending those text messages. Do you have those text messages where she said, as you said, “fucked” somebody?

George Huguely: I actually might have those, yeah.

Investigator 1: Alright, you got your phone with you? Let’s pull that out so we can see those.

George Huguely: They were like, guess what you would call, one of these, which is, like an ongoing conversation with instant message. [inaudible cross talk]

Investigator 1: [inaudible cross talk] [moves his phone to the middle of table]

George Huguely: I’m sure there’s emails that said she hooked up with somebody. I’m not lying about that.

Investigator 1: Do you own a home computer or laptop?

George Huguely: Yeah.

Investigator 1: Is that where all the emails are? Can you get to them on that? [gestures to phone]

George Huguely: Actually they’re deleted off here. I can get to them though.

Investigator 1: That’s fine. Um, so last week. You kinda broke up a while ago but are still talking. Last week you get pissed because she sends you that text so last night you went over there because you wanted to talk. So lets talk about how you..

George Huguely: Entered?

Investigator 1: Entered, yeah.

George Huguely: Yeah, I mean.

Investigator 1: Cause to put your fist through the door.

George Huguely: This is all from lacrosse. This is all…

Investigator 1: That seems pretty fresh right there [gestures to his arm/hand]

George Huguely: This is all from lacrosse game on Saturday. You can see where my arm pads are. Right here, my gloves right here.

Investigator 1: Right there? I thought you wore those padded gloves?

George Huguely: [showing bruises on arms] This is all defense, this is all from lacrosse, one hundred percent. This is where my arm pads are, and my gloves end here. This is all tanned because that’s where gets sun, compared to like my legs [shows leg] the difference in color and that’s, I got whacked. I remember one hundred percent. Got whacked when I was trying to [inaudible: kill the clock?]

Investigator 1: When you had her and shaking her did she scratch you in anyway?

George Huguely: No. She didn’t scratch me.

Investigator 1: Hit you or anything like that?

George Huguely: No.

George Huguely: [inaudible] that’s how I got in, yeah, yeah, and I stuck my arm through and unlocked it. And then in there. [inaudible]

Investigator 1: What was she saying while you were kicking the door? Did you just go straight kick or did you knock first?

George Huguely: No, I knocked first. I was like “Yeardley, let me in”. And I think she said something like, that was like, I remember, that was like, I just don’t remember exactly what, I remember her saying something or whispering some shit or like, I don’t know. And I was like, Alright well. She knew, because I sent her emails. Like six emails that were like “we need to talk, I’m coming over to talk to you” and like, and she actually did respond to those. Actually [inaudible] she was like “fuck you, I’m not talking to you” like something along those lines.

George Huguely: Well we are, not, [inaudible] and I’m going, well she wants to move to New York and I’m not exactly sure what I’m doing yet but [inaudible] San Francisco. And um so we’ve been like talking about this. Found a text message in my phone from another girl and we broke up because of that. So like, an ongoing type deal.

Investigator 2: [inaudible] that you mention putting your hands around her neck and holding her back that way. Is that another reason you broke up? Arguments, any past physical violence?

George Huguely: Um, that happened

Investigator 2: Keep in mind, before we talked to you we’ve talked to other people.

George Huguely: No, I understand that. I mean, that night that she found the text messages in my phone, I was more drunk than I probably have ever been. And she did the same thing like yelling at me and hitting me and I’m drunk. And I actually laid on her, like detained on her kind of, and she ended up leaving but that happened that night.

Investigator 2: How did you detain her?

George Huguely: I mean, sir, like that night I was

Investigator 2: Did you get off of her yourself or did other people have to get you off of her?

George Huguely: Uh, I, I really don’t remember that night…at all.

Investigator 2: [inaudible] choked her a little bit?

George Huguely: Nah, I don’t think I choked her. She never said I choked her. She said I laid on her and held her.

Investigator 2: How did you lay down on her?

George Huguely: She said I literally like laid on her.

Investigator 2: Was she face down or face up?

George Huguely: I don’t even know. Like, we’ve hung out since that night. A bunch of times. Like actually, probably a dozen times since that night and we haven’t really talked about that. But since that night, like she’s never said that like I was choking her or anything. She said I literally like laid on her and like

Investigator 2: Shes about what? 105-110 lbs soaking wet? You’re almost double her size.

George Huguely: Yeah. Probably.

Investigator 2: What? you don’t think would maybe be enough to take the breathe out of her if you’re laying down on top of her?

George Huguely: I mean, I never thought about it like that. I never like hurt, never like hurt her.

Investigator 2: We never mentioned anything about [inaudible] her in the face and you constantly [inaudible] didn’t punch her in the face. We haven’t even asked you that question. [crosstalk] smack her like “snap out of it?”.

Investigator 2: No, I never told you you had any warrants on you. I said you were detained.

George Huguely: I know but someone said “you’re here for an assault investigation”.

Investigator 2: Have you ever threatened any harm to her?

George Huguely: No, no.

Investigator 2: Why’d you take her computer?

George Huguely: No, No, nothing, nothing.

Investigator 2: Why’d you take that computer then?

George Huguely: I, you could look at my computer and see emails that are on my computer that are on her computer. Emails are [inaudible] It’s not like her email account is erased because I took her computer. I have no idea why I took the computer. Probably because she was like not talking to me, and not like, she’s did like all this stuff and I just walked out of there with her computer.

Investigator 2: Why would this little girl just for no reason start attacking you out of the blue?

George Huguely: You could ask my friends I was with that night

Investigator 2: [inaudible crosstalk] yeah that night.

George Huguely: Um, you can, I wish, I have four, three eye witnesses for that one. She walked in and started punching me in the face, hitting me with her purse, hitting me with her cellphone. And literally when I stood up and backed away it was like, to the other, “you got to stop, get away from me, get away from me” she came, she kept coming back for more.

Investigator 2: [inaudible]

George Huguely: No, sir. I’m not lying. Like, you can look through all the emails.

[crosstalk]

Investigator 2: So [inaudible: why the heck?] would you break that door down?

George Huguely: Because I wanted to, I said it

Investigator 2: It’s more than that man, that’s rage, the way that door is kicked in. That was pure rage. You must have been seriously mad.

George Huguely: No.

Investigator 1: You’ve told us everything else

[cross talk]

George Huguely: I’ve told you guys everything, I’m not hiding anything. I’ve told you everything.

Investigator 2: Then why kick the door in? That’s just pure rage.

George Huguely: I wanted to talk to her, I wanted to talk to her, I wanted to talk to her.

Investigator 1: Have you always been that way with her? As far as if she didn’t want to do something it was kind of your way or the highway type of thing?

George Huguely: No, no.

Investigator 2: [inaudible] I understand you had a lot of alcohol in you last night, okay? Do you think that maybe could have lead you to, why you, fed your emotions to kick in that door?

George Huguely: That that may have have have made me rationalize kicking in the door to open it up. But it was all strictly to go in there and talk to her. I wanted to talk to her. I told her, I sent emails, you can see the emails, you can see everything. Said “we need to talk about this”, I sent like three emails like “I want to come talk to you” then like “fuck yourself”. I should not have gone over there when like, when I was drinking. But like that, that made me emotional so I wanted to go talk to her. That’s why I kicked to the door. That’s why I wanted to talk to her.

Investigator 2: I know you mentioned you fell on her a week ago, right? When you were laying on her.

George Huguely: That was, that was

Investigator 2: a month ago

George Huguely: a month ago

Investigator 2: When you detained her, right? Did you detain [inaudible] at all?

George Huguely: No

Investigator 2: Did you fall down on top of her wrestling?

George Huguely: We were wrestling on the ground for a little bit.

Investigator 2: Did you wrestle on the bed at all?

George Huguely: Nah, nah, never like, nah, never like. Maybe I shook her?

Investigator 2: No I mean like hold her down until she calmed down a bit?

George Huguely: No, if anything [crosstalk]

Investigator 2: I’m sure you didn’t want to hurt her. That way if you were restraining her [inaudible] she wouldn’t be able to hurt herself as much.

George Huguely: I never laid on her or any of that. Like, when we were on the floor, when her nose started bleeding, like wrestled around, that’s when her nose started bleeding.

Investigator 2: Was it pretty noisy when you guys were wrestling around?

George Huguely: No.

Investigator 1:  Was she screaming?

George Huguely: No. No. No. She was, no. She was not screaming, actually.

Investigator 2: If I’m cracking my head in the wall, I’m going to be saying ow.

George Huguely: Yeah. No, she was not screaming. She should have been. Probably, I mean maybe, I don’t know.

Investigator 1: Why do you think she should have been?

George Huguely: I don’t know. I mean, well, she was screaming when I first ,like, came in the room. She was like “no, I’m not talking to you. Get the fuck out of here” and all that. But like, that was it.

Investigator 1: When um, at any point before you said you, and this was your words, you tossed her on the bed and then you left.

George Huguely: Yeah

Investigator 1: At any point before that, did she lose consciousness?

George Huguely: No.

Investigator 1: Okay. What happened after you tossed her on the bed? Did she move? Talk about, say something?

George Huguely: I mean, I literally tossed her on the bed and turned around…

Investigator 1: Tossed her on the bed or tossed her on the floor?

George Huguely: On the bed and walked out the door.

Investigator 1: Did she have on, did she still have her tee-shirt on at that point?

George Huguely: Uh, yeah. Uh. She, yeah, I mean she never, she only had her tee shirt on the entire time. She never had, she never was not, unclothed.

Investigator 1: So you didn’t sexually assault her or anything?

George Huguely: No, no no no, no!

Investigator 1:  Okay. I have to ask.

George Huguely: I’m sorry I’m sorry [inaudible] I apologize.

Investigator 1: When you tossed her on her bed was she on her back or her stomach?

George Huguely: I mean, I think she was on her back I’m not sure. I mean I was like, you know

Investigator 1: I asked you earlier about the light. ‘Cause if shes kinda in bed maybe the lights were off. Where the lights on? Did you turn them on?

George Huguely: The lights were..

Investigator 1: For you to be able to see?

George Huguely: The lights were not on.

Investigator 1: How did you see the blood and stuff coming out her nose?

George Huguely: Because she has a big bay window by her room and there’s lights from the parking lot. And I mean, it’s not hard, it’s easy to see.

Investigator 1: Okay, so when you toss her back on the bed she’s bleeding. You said she was bleeding out her nose and you didn’t feel you needed to call rescue?

George Huguely: No.

Investigator 1: After banging her head, and shaking her and blood coming out of her nose on the floor?

George Huguely: No, I mean…

Investigator 1: Let me ask you this, did you um, and you’ve been honest so far so there’s really no reason for you not to, to lie about anything, when you left out of there were you kinda like “you got what you deserved” and that’s why you didn’t call 911?

George Huguely: No, no no no no. It wasn’t about that for me. It was about going to talk to her. It was nothing about…

Investigator 1: You miss anything you want to ask him about right now?

George Huguely: There’s nothing about going to get anything, or going, you know. I don’t know. I took the computer and that was irrational but that was like my collateral if you could look at it like that, that’s where my logic was at.

Investigator 1: Well I have to tell you something.

Investigator 2: I think I know why you took that computer.

George Huguely: Cause why, do you think?

Investigator 1: [Inaudible to investigator 2] She’s dead. You killed her George. You killed her.

George Huguely: She’s dead?

Investigator 1: I think you knew that already.

George Huguely: No, I did not. She’s dead? How the fuck is she dead?

Investigator 1: Because you killed her.

George Huguely: How the fuck is she dead?

Investigator 1: ‘Cause you killed her George.

George Huguely: Oh my god.

Investigator 2: We’re not here for any reason, George.

George Huguely: [Head down pulling hair] She’s dead?

Investigator 1: Yes.

George Huguely: She’s dead?

Investigator 1: Yes.

George Huguely: She’s dead?

Investigator 1: She’s dead.

George Huguely: How? How?

Investigator 1: I already told you how and you already told us how as well.

George Huguely: How is she dead?

Investigator 1: You just told us.

George Huguely: How is she dead? How is she dead? I didn’t strangle her, I didn’t do any, I didn’t fucking  hit her. [whispers “how the fuck is she dead”] I don’t even know. I don’t. She’s dead?

Investigator 2: Yes.

George Huguely: How the fuck is she dead? Oh my god.

Investigator 2: We’re serious George. That’s why you took the computer, isn’t it?

George Huguely: No!

Investigator 2: Because you had threats to kill her on that from a past email because she hooked up with a player from UNC.

George Huguely: I never, I said that, I never, that was just like the heat of the moment, it was heat of the moment.

Investigator 2: Last night was heat of the moment too, wasn’t it? You went in there to talk with her and it got out of control. Right George? The alcohol got ahold of you? You kicked in her door, she started to fight with you, you punched her in the head or you cracked her head in the window or in the wall.

George Huguely: She’s not dead, She’s not dead.

Investigator 2: She is, I aint B.S.ing you. Right now it’s serious.

George Huguely: I want to see, I want to see her. She’s not dead.

Investigator 1: George, She. Is. Dead.

Investigator 2: You’re not here to dance with us. You’re here because she’s dead. The alcohol has…

George Huguely: I don’t believe it, I don’t believe it. I didn’t, I didn’t, I didn’t, I didn’t hurt her.

Investigator 2: Listen to me, listen to me, listen to me. You probably didn’t mean to hurt her.

George Huguely: I didn’t hurt her.

Investigator 2: You went in there, you kicked the door, she got a little feisty, you either punched her or smacked her head into the concrete and then you held her down under a pillow because that’s…

George Huguely: I didn’t hold her under a pillow I was never on the bed.

Investigator 2: Okay then.

George Huguely: I never held her down, I never,  I never suffocated her, I never did anything. I don’t believe that she’s dead. [cross talk] I don’t believe that she’s dead. I don’t believe that she’s dead.

Investigator 2: Did you punch her did you…

George Huguely: How, there’s no way that she’s dead. She’s not dead. I never did anything [inaudible] that she could be dead.

Investigator 2: Listen to me listen to me, listen to me. Did you punch her or..

George Huguely: No. I never, I never, No.

Investigator 2: Did you hold her head into the wall? Did you crack it?

George Huguely: No. Is her head cracked?!

Investigator 2: Did you smack her head into the wall?

George Huguely: No, she’s not dead, she’s not dead. You guys said she had a black eye and a bump on her head.

Investigator 1: She has those things.

George Huguely: But she’s, she’s, she’s not dead. I didn’t, I didn’t, I didn’t, I did not.

Investigator 1: Let’s calm down.

George Huguely: I did not like hurt her. Like, She’s not dead.

Investigator 1: Calm down there, George, okay?

George Huguely: Tell me she’s not dead. Tell me she’s not dead. Tell me she’s not dead.

Investigator 1: I want you to calm down right now, okay?

George Huguely: I don’t believe it, I don’t believe it. I never did anything that could do that to her.

Investigator 1: Let’s calm down, okay

George Huguely: I never did anything that could do this to her I swear to God. Never did anything that could do that to her. I never, no. I refuse to believe that she’s dead. There’s no way that anything that happened last night could kill her.

Investigator 2: Okay. Well, just out of protocol I need you to stand up for me and put your hands behind your back.

George Huguely: [stands up and puts arms behind back, handcuffs put on]

Investigator 1: Relax

Investigator 2: Relax, it will be fine.

George Huguely: Tell me she’s not dead, tell me she’s not dead, no, please. Will you tell me she’s not dead?

Investigator 1: Relax

Investigator 1: You know what, I wish I could tell you that George. Twenty two years old. Twenty two and her life is done.

George Huguely: Oh my god. Kill me.

Investigator 2: [inaudible]

George Huguely: [inaudible] anything that could do that.  I did not do anything that could have killed her.

Investigator 1: You do realize you are under arrest?

George Huguely: I realize that.

Investigator 1: Alright. We’re going to contact the commonwealth attorney on the proper charge but it’s going to be related to her death.

George Huguely: She’s dead? How? There’s no way. Oh my god. There’s no way she would be dead. There’s no way, oh my God, there’s no way. There’s no way, there’s no way, there’s no way. I don’t believe it.

Investigator 2: Help us understand what happened last night, George. Start over from the beginning.

George Huguely: I’m not lying to you. Everything I said to you was so true. I’m not lying to you about anything.

Investigator 2: Why do you think you’re sitting here in hand cuffs?

George Huguely: For, for, for, maybe what you guys said were assault charges?

Investigator 2: She’s dead, I’m not lying to you.

George Huguely: You would have said murder charges if you were lying, if you were honest you would have said murder charges.

Investigator 2: She was assaulted.

George Huguely: You would have said murder charges.

Investigator 2: That resulted in her death.

George Huguely: You would have said I murdered her. You would have said I murdered. Did she die this morning? Afterwards?

Investigator 2:  I can’t tell you that.

George Huguely: I know but listen I didn’t murder her [stomps foot] I didn’t murder her. I didn’t. I know she’s not dead. I know she’s not dead, I know she’s not dead, I know she’s not dead, I know she’s not dead. There’s no way she’s dead.

Investigator 2: Well, we’re going to find out.

George Huguely: What did she die from?

Investigator 2: We’re going to find out. I can’t make that determination.

George Huguely: Sir, Sir…

Investigator 2: Either head trauma or asphyxiation.

George Huguely: There was no asphyxiation.

Investigator 1: Okay.

George Huguely: Oh my God, oh my God, oh my God.

Investigator 2: And I know you told me the truth but I think there are some part you’re leaving out.

George Huguely: Nah, sir.

Investigator 2: How did she get all of that head trauma?

George Huguely: From banging.

Investigator 2: I don’t believe that. I don’t believe she banged her own head in the wall.

George Huguely: When we were wrestling, I don’t believe she’s dead. I don’t believe she’s dead. There’s no way she’s dead. There’s no way she’s dead. She has to be alive, she has to be alive, she has to. There’s no way. She wasn’t. There’s no way. There’s no way. The last I saw her she was not dead, she was not dead. [inaudible]

Investigator 2: What was she doing the last time you saw her?

George Huguely: She was like, she was like standing up with me. She was standing up with me. She was standing up with me, looking at me.

Investigator 2: Was she standing or were you holding her?

George Huguely: She was standing up looking at me. I don’t believe it, I do not believe it. I don’t believe it, I don’t believe it. Sir, I don’t believe it. Sir, Sir, please tell me you’re lying.

Investigator 2: I’m not lying. She’s dead.

Investigator 2: You know how.

George Huguely: No, I didn’t know. No, no, no. No, I didn’t know. No, no, no.

Investigator 2:  Why didn’t you know?

George Huguely: She’s not dead, she’s not dead. She’s not dead, I know she’s not dead. [cries with head down, inaudible cries]

Investigator 2: I know it got out of control last night, George.

George Huguely: She’s not dead. She’s not dead. She’s not dead. I know one hundred [inaudible crying] I didn’t [inaudible crying] She can not be dead. You’re not lying to me either, are you? You’re not lying to me. She’s dead? Oh my God.

Investigator 2: Did you smack her head then lay her on the bed so she could kind of relax?

George Huguely: No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no.

Investigator 2: Well you didn’t punch her because I don’t think you would have done that.

George Huguely: No, no, no, no. I still do not believe it. Sir, I don’t believe it, I don’t believe it, I don’t believe it. You came in and said you were filing an assault charge and that makes sense but that doesn’t even make sense. That doesn’t even make sense.

Investigator 2: She was assaulted and she died.

George Huguely: No way, no way, no way, no way, no way.

Investigator 2: And you were there, this happened while you were there. This is the time to man up, George. Tell me what happened.

George Huguely: I told you what happened, I told you what happened, I told you what happened.

Investigator 2: Then what happened again?

George Huguely: I told you what happened, I told you what happened.

Investigator 1: It got out of control.

George Huguely: It didn’t. I told you what happened. It didn’t get out of control. She’s not dead, she’s not dead, she’s not dead. There’s no way she’s dead. There’s no way! I didn’t do! No way! There’s no way!
